Do you use Firefox? (if not, think in start using it). Do you hate those annoying Flash animations all around some web pages? I really hate websites where 4, 5 or even more Flash animations are playing at the same time, making your CPU going crazy. FlashBlock is the solution to your problems.
FlashBlock is a Firefox extension that prevents the load of Flash animations by replacing the flash animation by an icon that, if you press it, loads the animation.
